By signing an estimated $20 million contract with MyNetFone, Tasmanian Government staff and departments will make better use of Voice over IP (VoIP) telephony services. The contract will follow an initial agreement term of three years, with extensions of up to ten.

Selecting MyNetFone was a rigorous process, with the company now investing in additional infrastructure to further the state’s pursuit of supporting the contracted services. This infrastructure investment is expected to result in an earning accretive outcome in the first year of service, according to MyNetFone.

Furthermore, employees in all offices under the Tasmanian Government will be allowed Session Initiation Protocol (News - Alert) (SIP) for enhanced communication via MyNetFone, having access regardless of if they are located on a main site or working in a remote branch office, promoting enhanced collaboration and productivity.

Piero Peroni, TMD general manager, reported that MyNetFone has proven itself to be a reliable and capable developer of these services to meet the government’s specific needs and requirements. He added that the agreement will also position the Tasmanian government “to meet the evolving needs of its communities,” which will contribute to its growth and diversity, while MyNetFone’s expanded operations will commit to the state completely in their affairs and objectives.

Rene Sugo, MyNetFone’s group CEO, explained that the agreement made with the Tasmanian Government will show how far telephony has reached to acquire the maturity and scalability necessary to serve such large organizations.

As years have passed, VoIP has become an essential communications protocol, allowing users everywhere to enjoy telephonic communications via the Internet. It’s no secret that VoIP has truly revolutionized the telecommunications sector. Wholesale VoIP providers work within this sector to negotiate costs with countries or abroad locations, as well as set profit margins and resell to VoIP services. In a nutshell, they aim to provide low cost, 24/7 support solutions, and offer toll-free and hosted PBX (News - Alert) phone systems handling wholesale origination and termination, as detailed by Carrie Schmelkin.
